Butterflies & more

 It’s been absolutely forever since I’ve joined a challenge across at TIOT (try it on Tuesday) and  after  playing yesterday with inks & embossing powder I , by coincidence, have something that fits the theme so I’m going to join in! 

Smooshed inks & several layers of embossing powder as well as some stamping, doodled borders and chit-chat stickers resulted in the following ATCs

So there are my bits of fun - bright colours to bring sunshine to the grey day!

Arting about....

 The “error 404” message for loading summer is still happening so I’m still indoors and spending time with my art journal or a good book!

Here’s some of what I’ve been up to....

Playing with book pages and the new Salvaged Patina distress ink/oxide

With seedless preserves & mermaid lagoon 

A general mopping up sheet!

Cracked pistachio & peacock feathers 

Shaded lilac & spun sugar

Speckled egg, rusty hinge & walnut stain

And here’s how some of them have been used recently 

Colour me positive & life documented on opposite pages

Another set...

This one is another mopping up page!

I’ve used another one for this week’s Life documented and a Picasso image as a starting point. My mum loved owls and this week marks 7 years since she passed away so it seemed an appropriate image to use for cutting/collating simple shapes for our prompt- the quote we are given happens to be a Picasso one so serendipity!

Thanks for stopping by......

Time for some more shares!

 Colour me positive 

Life documented 

I used the new Salvaged Patina ink & oxide for the this one along with Hickory Smoke & Black Soot, totally ignored the prompt as I don’t journal in here but I did use the quote.

The #100daysofmoos is now done & dusted!

Here’s the ocean set...

The sewing set....

Some animals....I didn’t have 10 small enough!

And then it’s a random bunch to complete the collection 

I’m currently auditioning ideas for next year’s challenge!!!
